Carrier Ethernet LEADERBOARDs
Mid-Year 2015
Detailed Carrier Ethernet market share results are available to ENS @Ethernet Research Program subscribers.
Global Provider LEADERBOARD
Competition in the Global Provider segment tightened in the first half of 2015, with LEADERBOARD rankings shifting for three companies. Verizon dropped to fifth position from a rank of third overall at the end of 2014. Colt moved into third position from fourth in 2014, while AT&T moved up to fourth from fifth position. 

Global Provider LEADERBOARD release
"U.S. Ethernet port growth was unprecedented in the first half of 2015 and easily surpassed previous estimates," said Rick Malone, principal at Vertical Systems Group. "Primary drivers for growth are massive migration from TDM to Ethernet services, robust demand for higher speed Ethernet private lines and rising requirements for connectivity to public and private Clouds."

Vertical Systems Group's LEADERBOARDs are industry benchmarks for measuring Ethernet market presence based on port installations. Our biannual LEADERBOARDs publicly rank the market share leaders. Other providers with Ethernet share are cited in either the Challenge or Market Player tier.
